Final Sacrifice (Magic: The Gathering: Greensleeves, #3) Years Of Fighting Have Come And Gone But Now The Last Battle Must Be Faced From Frozen Mountains To An Ocean Drowned Forest, From War Torn Battlefields To The Flowing Crypts Of Lat Nam, The Archdruid Greensleeves Travels With Her Ragged Troops Searching For Spells To Defeat An Army Of Angry Wizards And End Their Reign Of Terror While Greensleeves Uncovers Ancient Mysteries, Gull The Woodcutter Fights A Fierce Battle With A Keldon Warlord Who Holds The Key To An Awful Secret From The PastWith Each Fight, Greensleeves, Gull, And Their Outnumbered Army Realize That Only One Last Desperate Spell Can Save Them All But To Unleash It, Greensleeves Must Be Willing To Make The Final SacrificeFinal SacrificeBased On The Bestselling Magic The Gathering Trading Card Game I think this was the weakest of the trilogy by far.I feel like, once again, character development conflicts were just tacked on and ignored the growth of the previous books E.g Lily goes back to once again having no agency or confidence for the third time It s like the author couldn t think of any other character facet to use, so he just keeps revisiting the same one.The first half was another giant montage, it felt like We had just a gratuitous series of Greensleeves kicking some ass scenes, with a sprinkling of hey the evil wizards found a loophole and are plotting It serves to set up the final conflict, but not much else, so spending half a book on that was a bit much.The pacing in general was very odd We had that sense of things are going swimmingly , but then that just stops We had the sense of urgency when the army is finally ambushed and their forest and sacred grove thing invaded, and yet.that just lets up They just repel the attack and are inexplicably given MONTHS of time to regroup Suddenly, we remember there are Hurloon Minotaurs who know everything and can help We have to rush there quickly..and then hurry up and wait for a month It doesn t really serve any purpose to include that delay I get it in context, but I m saying you could have made those minotaurs into anything, there was no precedent in the other books, so choosing to make them this trilogy s Entmoot was a bizarre choice.Now we have the location of the college.back to urgency We have to go there right now and transport the entire army there who have been doing what this entire time.We have a bizarre battle with the Angels and Merfolk, finally being introduced to this universe, that really didn t need to happen if our heroes weren t utterly incompetent It felt like the author just really wanted to break up a lot of dull exposition with a battle, so found a flimsy excuse to make one happen.Then it turns out it was all one huge red herring They just have to have a battle anyway, including an I totally called that reveal of the warlord s identity.Most of these were RELATIVELY minor and forgivable, but the big climactic end wasn t.The big final sacrifice was to just give up your totally unnecessary restraint using your powers in battle THAT S IT That s not really a sacrifice so much as a moral epiphany that sometimes the ends can in fact justify the means.So she goes super saiyan and single handedly wins the war THE END It s just not a satisfying ending I did like finally figuring out the helmet properly and exercising some restraint after making that first justifiable example, but otherwise.the ending was a wet fart that didn t live up to what was actually a pretty decent buildup Hell the army refusing to flee to safety was actually emotional than you d expect from a tie in novel like this It was just in service of a big anticlimax.I was mildly entertained, certainly less than the previous two books, but I m now looking forward to leaving this trilogy behind and moving on to something new. I must say that I ve enjoyed the first four MTG books Clayton Emery has done an admirable job of bringing the magic of Dominia to the pages of novels, as well as creating a nice story with engaging characters and a pretty exciting plot However, I am glad that this story has come to an end and of the world of MTG can now be explored.In Final Sacrifice, Gull and Greensleeves continue to barely survive fight after fight against a team of wizards that they have thwarted in the past until Greensleeves eventually just snaps and nearly destroys everything around her The ending of the book comes as somewhat of a surprise, with characters from the past reappearing and the final sacrifice not being what you d expect.Another quick, easy, and enjoyable read, I d reccomend it for someone looking for a short and relaxing read. Ending was a bit disappointing, but the build up to the end was to be expected The end just seemed a bit anticlimactic, but the storytelling was in line with all the other novels in this trilogy A few nice tidbits about the world of Magic were scattered throughout this book as the others , but again, independent of the later books which are plane specific or character specific.
